    Hi guys!!
    Woww, my two dream Ferraris side by side.
    Thanks a lot on that amazing article!
    I just wish they had thrown in the 288 GTO, then it would be perfect. Or even maybe the F50 so it could be proven once and for all the F40 is faster ;) IMHO though
    Well, I really love the Enzo, but the F40 will remain as my favourite, besides I grew up with the F40 myth around me, so... It's a sentimental issue..

    thaks again on the article... awesome!!!
    :)

    from the article:

    >>if you kept on top of the F40 it would reward like few others. It wasn't, however, anything that you wanted to unleash on the highway. Never mind the engine's fractious supremacy; the gearshift was sticky and difficult to use smoothly, the brakes would grumble and fade in no time, the driving position was only so-so and the noise in the cabin was formidable.<<

    The brakes would fade in no time? On the road? Something must be lost in the translation from the King's English.

    Good point. And he was actually refering to unleashing the car on the highway. F40 brake fade on a highway? Makes you wonder about the rest of the guy's article.

    I was thinking the same. Having spent a LOT of time driving an F40 I can assure you that the tubo is 100% predictable and would certainly NOT suddenly lose traction, wet or dry, without giving lots of warning.
